If you’re interested in ICT and agriculture, please have a look at the ICT 4 Agriculture conference in Kigali – our friends at KINU are one of the organizers!
The ICT 4 Agriculture conference will be taking place in Kigali, Rwanda from 4-8 November 2013 to look into the future of ICTs for agriculture. KINU is a partner of the ICT4ag conference. This conference is not just for policy makers, people in public sector or “ICT people”. We are interested in showcasing and sharing projects that are community initiatives.

The agenda for the ICT4Ag conference is still being developed. However, to give you a flavour of what is on offer, here is an outline of what you can expect:
4 November: Plug and Play Day – Discover and experience innovation, m-apps, web2.0 and social media pro in an informal environment and … let the hackathon begin!
5 – 7 November: Main conference (with an unconventional twist);
7 November: International awards ceremonies
8 November: Field visit(s)
This is your chance to have your say in how to establish a dynamic and enabling environment where ICTs for agriculture (farming, fisheries and livestock) can flourish. Be part of the debate as we discuss topics such as ICTs and value chains, advocacy and policy development, and assessing the impact of ICTs.
Do you have stories, case studies or solutions on ICTs and agricultural and rural development that you would like to share with a global audience? Will your contribution to the ICT4Ag conference teach and inspire? If so, then we would like to hear from you.
